Baking Our Hearts Out

We've been doing some Valentine baking at our house and oh what fun we've had!  Over the last couple of days we've baked 6 dozen cookies and 4 dozen cupcakes.  We made Buttercream frosting too.  It turned out so yummy that I don't know why I ever use store bought cans.  Not only does the Buttercream frosting taste better but using this recipe costs less than buying the canned stuff.
  • 3-3/4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine ingredients in large bowl, with mixer at low speed.  Beat at medium speed 1-2 minutes until creamy.  Makes enough to fill and frost 2-layer cake, or 9x13 sheet cake, or 24 cupcakes.  

We used a bit of icing color

to turn our white frosting pink!

Yum...sugar cookies.


and fun plates and platters.

Here's the plate Olivia made for our new next door neighbors.

And the cupcakes we toted to church.

Happy Valentine's Day!
